Child Custody and Doing What’s Best for Your Children

Divorce is difficult on all parties involved, especially children. They don’t often understand what is going on. And in some cases, they even believe they had something to do with the split.

When it comes to issues of child custody, it’s a must to do what is in the best interest of the children. This may not mean that you get everything you want, but in the end you have to keep your children in mind.

The court focuses primarily on the best interest of the children, wanting to make a decision that will put them in position to regain normalcy. Some of the factors that the court considers when awarding custody include:

  • Which parent cares for the children most of the time
  • The employment situation of the parents
  • Which parent is most likely to facilitate a relationship with their former spouse
  • The living situation of both parents
  • Which parent is able to provide the most stable environment
  • Whether a parent has remarried

Divorce can turn your life upside down. If this takes its toll on you, imagine what it is doing to your children.

They handled my case with the highest degree of professionalism and integrity and made every effort to be efficient and transparent with me throughout the whole process. I was told that they were the best as far as family law is concerned and I believe that praise was fully justified.
Amber McFee is always professional and great to work with. Being opposing counsel by nature is adversarial, but Amber is professional in approach while effectively advocating for her clients. She will treat you right!
